Not Late ~ Just Lazy

I say, I'm not really late with the TU SAL. I took the photo on time for the full moon...I just haven't blogged it until now. Isn't this impressive ORT collecting, even with having eleven days less? Remember how late I was last new moon? Having lots of stitching mojo is awesome!


The Autumn Clematis has started blooming. I hope this means it is finally Fall, at last. Our weather has improved with rain and cooler temperatures (for the most part.)

Now, don't ask what the name of this Clematis is. I have no idea! "Edit: this is clematis paniculata" It grows like crazy. In fact, it went all Jack-in-the-Beanstalk and covered over the Butterfly Bush...I'll have to watch it closer next year! Sheba refused to look at the camera as she hadn't gotten her hair brushed this week.

The flowers are less than an inch across and are creamy white. And it blooms out late, late in the season. Pretty, isn't it? It's planted on the side of Rick's garden shed on a pretty white iron trellis. Damn stuff grows like Kudzu and you can't even see what it's hanging on...so it kinda looks like a huge green blob on the shed. LOL


Thank you for visiting my blog today!

What a beautiful clematis. Our 3 clematis' started out really strong this year but came to nothing, so disappointing! We too have a butterfly bush, it never fails us and looks stunning year on year!

So pretty, and I bet the bees love it too!

It's nice to see that somebody else is still continuing with TUSAL (and tardy too!!) I think it's a lot of fun to see how much stitching is done in a year.

Happy stitching!

At least you're getting SOME stitching done! Very pretty flowers too :)

Our Autumn Clematis took over the corner of our house this year. It's just starting to bloom and is quite nice, even if we can't see our house.

Yours is lovely.

The Clematis is beautiful, wish I had one...About the orts why waste them bu throwing them out.. Go to Michaels or some other craft store and buy some clear Christmas bulbs and stuff the threads in them . They would really go well with hand stitcched ornaments.. Carol M.

Myra said...

Much cooler here this weekend too and I am loving it. Is there really a shed behind that bush? :o) Pretty blooms.

Lynn said...

What a pretty clematis! I never even knew that there was such a thing as an autumn flowering clematis. Ours flowers in the spring. For the past 2 yrs it had very few blooms but this year it was loaded.

Lesleyanne said...

Your Clematis is beautiful. Your Tusal jar looks good too,

Julie said...

What pretty and delicate flowers that monster of a plant has on it - very nice.

mbroider said...

I loved the "Sheba refused to look at the camera as she hadn't gotten her hair brushed this week"

I went the LOL way, and got weird looks from my colleagues in the office:)

And of course, your stitching is exquisite..

Shari said...

I had one of those clematis & we had a bad spring/summer one year & it didn't come back.....it was a new plant that year......so sad, because they are BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!
